Pitch It Close To Any Flag

Pitch It Close To Any Flag

Anyone can get up and down from 40 yards. It's a simple motion where you keep your lower body quiet and just flow the club back and through with about a quarter swing. Yet this shot -- the simple pitch -- drives everybody mad sometimes, even pros. No matter where the flag is, I like to think about making the same little backswing, with my grip light so the weight of the clubhead hinges my wrists. If I want to vary the height, I need to make only slight adjustments in my setup and release. If the pin's in the front of the green, there's a setup to hit the ball higher and stop it fast; if the pin's back, there's a setup to hit it lower and let it run. When all you have to do is adjust your setup and picture your finish position, your mind can stay clear during the shot.
